At one place in the text, I need to add a full bibliographic reference rather than just a citation (whereas in the rest of the document, I need just citations and a bibliography at the end of the document).

This answer helped me a lot. Using the syntax presented here, I succesfully entered the references in my text while preserving bibliography. However, having the \nobibliography* and then \bibliography commands produces two identical "Bibliography" entries in the table of contents. I thought the asterisk used with the \nobibliography was supposed to suppress that?

(I am using natbib with bibtex and no I can't switch to biber)

    Are you using the tocbibind package? If so, try \usepackage[notbib]{tocbibind}

  • This did the trick, thanks! Well, it removed BOTH the bibliography entries. But I just added the bibliography content line manually and seems to work.

  • Well, using tocbibind is however (much) easier than manually adding it with \addcontentsline, isn't it? tocbibind is the cleaner way

  • As I said, tocbibind with notbib removed both those entries. But I would rather have no more or less than one, so I use the notbib and \addcontentsline. Not a big deal.
